How to total a related list column

I thought this was a new feature of Salesforce but I can't seem to find it. Is there a way to show a running total of a field across all records when looking at the related list for that object?


For example, show a total of the Invoice RME Requested column in the footer of the related list below?

You can use an "Roll-up Summary Field" in your parent Object.

For example you have Account (Parent Object) and Opportunities (Child Object) so in Account object you can create a summary field that will COUNT the number of opportunities or SUM the value, etc
